Hi guys, I'm Lee, 37 from Essex, UK. Started collecting arcade machines for my dream man cave. So far I've picked up and restored an original time crisis as well as a naomi universal. I'm on the hunt for a 2 player sitdown outrun 2 as well as a silent scope. From there who knows!

Been loving arcades since I was a kid and I'm glad my job now allows me to afford it as a hobby!

Hi, I'm a longtime collector of MVS kits and art, I've got a pretty good collection of the not-fighting games stuff and a good bunch of the key fighters.

I've joined because I need some help fixing up a couple of consolised boards I've got... Hopeful there is someone nearby or further afield that will take a look with a soldering iron.

Hello all. I’m Gareth and I live in Manchester. I play way too many games and during lockdown have gone down a retro rabbit hole. I’ve also moved house and now have space for a cabinet. I’ve joined today in the hopes I can lay my hands on a Sega candy cab (Blast or Astro) for my basement home cinema / man cave. I promise to ask lots of stupid noob questions and pay way over the odds when I finally track down a suitable cab.

I am from Northwich and have loved arcade games for a long time. Played a lot of games in the arcades in the 80's and started collecting my own stuff around 4 years ago. I own an old Jamma cab, a Blast City, a tabletop pi 4 machine and an old fruit machine with plenty of PCB's (SF2HF, RoboCop, Rastan, Double Dragon 1&2, Shinobi etc.) and arcade tech like Naomi with a few carts as well as a couple of MVS games. Always looking for some of my childhood classics.

Hey there,

I am from germany and have been always a fan of old retro games. I am a collector of old games as well and since i finally start to create my own man cave gaming room, i want a cabinet for myself. I do have a DIY arcade which its pretty nice but i prefer the original. The next arcade is going to be a DDR Dance-machine. After that i want a candy cab and a lightgun arcade as well.

So hope can share the enthusiasm for these games and cabinets :)
Thanks for reading

Howdy! Discovering Windjammers/Flying Power Disc has sent me down the arcade rabbit hole and brought me here. It also helped reignite nostalgia for Konami titles I enjoyed at a younger age, “”in arcades, specifically Sunset Riders, X-Men, Turtles, Simpsons, etc. Look forward to connecting!

Hello, my name is Matt and I have used the wiki section of this website for a few years and have finally decided to dip my toes in the forums to hopefully meet some like-minded folks who love these candy cabs as much as I do. I currently have an Astro City and just recently acquired an Impress. Would love to connect with some other Impress owners as there isn’t much out there on these cabs!

Hi all
Been collecting for a few years now. Just starting to get into some of the new style cabs. Current line up is namco noir running tekken tag tournament unlimited 2, clone namco noir ringedge multi, super neo 29 running atomiswave, lai 4 slot neo geo, taito missile command cocktail and a naomi universal stand up jambo safari.

Recently picked up a heap of boards so slowly testing them.

Hi everybody
Living in Denmark, I always been in video games.
I stick mainly to retro games (Sega I will always love you) but never really invested in arcade. I hope it will change soon and I guess I will find lot of information over there.

See you over there in the forum :)

Hello, I go by Virus in a lot of internet places but I swear only my laugh is infectious!

Recently I made the questionable choice of buying a junker naomi universal cab and now I am going to dump every cent I can towards restoring it.
As much as I enjoy arcade games and tinkering around, I can't read an electrical diagram to save my life so I'll be relying on all the help google can give me, and a lot of google's info comes from you guys so why not hit the source?

I’m near Austin, TX, USA and love candy cabs despite only having one that I bought almost 20 years ago. Thinking it might be time to change that by getting another before they’re too hard to find.

I like a lot of older arcade games, fighting games when I have time to dig into them, and consoles from all eras. I have a good sized Neo Geo MVS collection with a few kits. Magical Drop II and Money Exchanger are in my cabinet pretty often. Thinking I want a dedicated vertical setup to really get into some shmups here and there along with playing some pacman.

Looking forward to getting to know you!
